Hoffman earns Eagle
He planned and then managed the construction of wooden enclosures for portable restrooms at Mount Gretna's Clarence Schock Memorial Park.
And for all of his work, 18-year-old Christopher Hoffman has won the highest honor in scouting, the Eagle Scout award.
Hoffman, a 2012 graduate of Warwick High School, is now a freshman at Penn State's Harrisburg campus, studying toward a degree in business information systems.
The son of Timothy and Janet Hoffman of Lititz, he won the Eagle as a member of Boy Scout Troop 44.
The Eagle is earned by only 2 percent of all boys who enter scouting.
Hoffman began in scouting as a Wolf Cub with Cub Scout Pack 154 of Lititz, earning the God and Family Award and the Arrow of Light.
As a Boy Scout with Troop 44, he earned 28 merit badges and held such leadership positions as assistant patrol leader, patrol leader and senior patrol leader.
He also is a four-time recipient of the Scout Spirit Award.
At Warwick, Hoffman was named to the honor roll, was a long jumper on the track and field team, and was a trumpeter in the symphonic band and marching band. n
